There's another example every day. An overactive security guard harassing a photographer on a public sidewalk. Cops intimidating people with cameras. Photography bans in subways. In a post 9/11 age of paranoia and suspicion, public photography is increasingly seen as threatening, or mistaken as criminal. And we here at JPG are sick of it.
So we devoted issue 5 to this important topic. The theme, "Photography is Not a Crime," is a rallying cry. It's meant to remind everyone that amateur photographers are the documentarians of real life. We capture our world to help us understand it. We are not a threat.
The issue contains 31 photographer's takes and stories on the theme, NYC subway photography by Edmund Leveckis, Shane Lavalette's Family Portrait Project, an interview with attorney Bert Krages, and a special clip-out Photographer's Right Bust Card.
